Story Time - Tall Tales

Wednesday, June 3, 2015, 10:30 - 11:30 a.m.

Do you like tall tales? Story Time on June 3rd will explore the heroes that are found in tall tales. Come listen to stories about Paul Bunyan and other bigger-than-life characters that rescue people from disasters or create natural landmarks using superhuman skills.

We encourage all toddlers and preschool-aged children to attend. During this hour we enjoy music, sing silly songs, play exciting learning games and make simple crafts for you to take home. It's a wonderful time to meet new friends and learn about all the great resources the library has to offer. All the books that are shared during our storytime hour can be counted on your summer reading log to receive prizes!

Daycare, summer camp groups are always welcome.

Let's not leave out the amazing and unique reptiles such as the alligator snapping turtle, monkey tail skink, huge monitor lizard and more that will help us to kick off this year's summer reading program and make it a truly heroic experience!
